What we took to Europe and how it worked out

This is the packing section of a trip report I am working on from a trip to Budapest, Vienna, Salzburg, and Munich recently.
Packing: We each took a carry-on size rolling suitcase and checked those since we were allowed one free checked bag. My husband took a backpack and a smaller day bag for his personal item and I took a Vera Bradley tote and my Travelon purse. I had extra space in the tote that I didn’t even need. We probably could have each left 2-3 shirts/tops at home as we didn’t end up wearing everything. Our clothing choices worked out great, we took shorts, skorts, jeans, a couple of other pairs of long pants and short and long sleeved shirts. I took Nike tennis shoes, which I wore on the plane, a pair of Woolrunners and ballet flats, plus my slippers for on the plane and in hotel room. My husband took loafers and Woolrunners. I took a lightweight hoodie, raincoat with hood, pashima, and a black cardigan. My husband took some pullovers, a Ralph Lauren navy cardigan, and a jacket. We took one umbrella and a couple of the plastic throw away rain covers, which we never used. We did use the umbrella a couple of days and the hotel in Salzburg also provided us with one in our room. I did notice hotel employees lend umbrellas to people a couple of times as well.

Thanks for your report! I always like to see what works for other people (and what didn't work, lol!) to pick up tips!

Sounds like you had a fun trip!

We carry about the same, but we never check a bag unless we are required to do so.
You went to four of my favorite cities that are especially lively places for Bohemian personalities.
